My OS- Windows XP Profesional SP2
My Processor- Intel Core2Duo 1.66 GHz
Laptop brand- Dell Inspiron E1405
Issue- Whenever I close my laptop’s lid and open it, the screen turns black. I tried pressing Windows key, alt+ctrl+del etc. but the screen shows nothing. So I need to force shutdown. Any help will be appreciated.

      I suggest that you submit a new question and share a few more details about what happened, what model laptop you have, what operating system is running, and what the symptoms are.

    Oh, damn I figured it out...It was nothing but my laptop was switching to stand by mode when I close its lid! Now I changed its preferences and its fine now!
    Thanks Fidelis for the quick answer.
